It’s been a while since we published a board report. In recent months the Board of the ACO:

  • Moved our membership list serve to and created a list serve policy. Leadership team member Katherine Jahnke has agreed to be list serve moderator.
  • Moved our website to a blog format in order to more easily distribute responsibility for developing and maintaining content. This was a Herculean effort, but will soon pay big dividends in terms of ease of management.
  • Added Robb Garrett to the Leadership Team and then appointed him to the Board of Directors. He is chair of the Marketing and PR Committee for the ACO.
  • Gayla Wilson, who was chair of the Marketing and PR Committee, has resigned from the Board to pursue other responsibilities.
  • Nominations Committee prepared a slate of candidates for this month’s election. Positions to be voted on in this election include VP, Treasurer, Membership Services, and Communications.
  • Shire Pharmaceuticals launched a series of public service announcements starting the end of October. The ACO is one of just three other resources they are directing viewers and listeners to.
  • Got started on the 2009 ACO Conference. the RFP has been posted and proposals are due this month.
